Ezhu Kari Kuzhambu/Kootu

How to make Ezhu Kari Kuzhambu (Sambhar with seven vegetables)

          This less known accompaniment for Thiruvathirai Kali and Ven Pongal is exclusively prepared by Amma on the day of  Pongal, which is served with Ven Pongal for breakfast, but is also carried over for lunch and served with steamed rice. This lip smacking gravy has been cooking in my family for many years and comes from my recipe diary. Although this gravy is typically made quite thick; you can thin it out like a Sambhar, if you like. Sharing this family recipe with you & my friends at CCChallenge - A cooking from cookbook event started by Sri Valli.

Amma's Idli Milagai Podi

How to make Idli Milagai Podi/Spiced Chutney powder

           One of the top must have's in a Tamil household, is the all time favorite - Idli Milagai Podi. Some use this crunchy spiced powder, only when they don't have the time or energy to make any accompaniments for their breakfast (Idli or Dosa); while for others this is a must have, even if there are a variety of Chutneys or Sambhar. This is my mom's recipe, which is made with Sesame seeds, most of the time to make it even more healthier. You can also make this, without Sesame seeds.
